I have been making jewellery for about 2 years now. My 3 sisters from England (Sue, Babs and Jan) came to Iowa for a visit in October 2008. We took a trip to Galena, Il, and paid a visit to Galena Beads - that's where it all started. I am happy to report that we are all beading fanatics now and we made a return visit in April 2010. My daughter, Emma, is a phenomenal artist in her own right. She plays drums and guitar in a band and can paint, draw and make beautiful pieces of jewellery. I have a wonderful husband - Graham, and an awesome son - Mike. They are very patient and supportive in all that I do.
This piece is called 'Forest Fern'. It is made with Vintaj Natural Brass. I love working with Vintaj components - they are high quality and very easy to work with. I coloured the fern and embossed and inked the blank to make the pattern. The pattern on the blank is sealed with Glossy Accents - Karen
